Trip to Bahau, Negeri Sembilan - part 1

Recently changed this post's title from "6 hours, a flower girl and a wedding at Bahau, Negeri Sembilan". #travel #negerisembilan #bahau #wedding

I rose early this morning just to pick the right attire for today's journey. It involves a long KTM ride to Bangi (approx 55 minutes), three hours drive to Bahau, Negeri Sembilan and a wedding.

I reached the nearest KTM station at around 7:15 am and the PWTC KTM station was in such a mess that I almost turned back and head home.


  • The ticket machines weren't working, the station felt musty and HOT, plus the electronic information boards have malfunctioned. 
  • I had no idea which side to wait on and which train to hop onto. 
  • The man at the counter didn't even look-up from his "counting" when I asked his help. And yet he's working in the customer service department. 
  • I waited about 40 minutes for a train!!!! #angrymuch
So I hopped off at Bank Negara KTM station from PWTC to wait once more after being advised.
This certainly made me keen on filing a complaint on the station because I chanced upon many other passengers who shared the same disappointment. I messaged my friend telling him that I'd be late and he advised me to hop on any train and wait at another station. Wahh, why didn't I think of that? LOL.

At the Bangi KTM station I chanced upon a university student who was looking for a taxi but none was available. Thankfully, my guy friend decided to give her a lift.

Do take note, I rode in a Toyota Vios. (wait till you read what I rode on my way back though! LOL!)

He who sings badly whilst driving (among other things). I recorded his singing to be LOLed at home. Oppss.. guess I'm still LOLing!
After being the good guy sending the poor student to her university, we were then caught in a very bad traffic jam heading out from Bangi towards Seremban. There were two cars in this convoy with four people in each car. And we were to meet another car down the road.

It was bad because both my friend (above picture) and another guy driving in the other car were the  official photographers for this particular wedding. We were suppose to be at Bahau by 11:30 am!!! And we only came out from Bangi at around 10 am. The ride from Bangi to Bahau, Negeri Sembilan takes about 2 hours.

Did we make it? What happened?

Till next entry. =)
